Self-efficacy refers to an individual's belief in his or her capacity to execute behaviors necessary to produce specific performance attainments, such as schoolwork. We are looking to investigate if self-efficacy is beneficial to improve a student’s academic performance. As well as determine if a student's determination to apply their academic capacity affects one’s self-efficacy. We hypothesize that the clarity and thoroughness of a student’s notes influence their self-efficacy. We also hypothesize that self-efficacy has no effect on note-taking behaviors. For our third hypothesis, we hypothesize that students' confidence in their note-taking ability Has a positive effect on their self-efficacy. Additional research needs to be conducted on self-efficacy to determine if student’s note-taking ability influences positive academic performance and achievement amongst college students. To collect data, we have created an anonymous online survey. Our study has been approved by Kent State IRB, and our data collecting is ongoing.
